Footnotes

Verse 2 alternate lyrics by Evangel Bible Church of Berkeley.

The phrase "emptied Himself" by itself is correct in the sense that Christ emptied Himself of certain divine prerogatives or powers (Philippians 2:7) in His "kenosis" or His leaving His heavenly glory to take on human flesh in the incarnation.  This is different than the "becoming nothing" in certain songs (like Once Again or Your Love Is Amazing) or in the NIV, which is a poor translation of that verse.

However, "emptied Himself of all but love" is not technically correct because Christ didn't empty Himself of ALL divine prerogatives or powers EXCEPT love.  I think we all can sing the phrase without getting stumbled in this theological point, but it does fall short under closer and more technical scrutiny.


Beautiful One

Verse 1

G
Wonderful, so 
A
wonderful, is 
D/F#
Your unfailing love;
Your 
G
cross has spoken 
A
mercy over

me.
No 
G
eye has seen, no 
A
ear has heard, no 
D/F#
heart could fully know
How 
G
glorious how 
A
beautiful You 
D
are!

Chorus

Beautiful 
G
One, I 
A
love You; beautiful 
G
One, I a
A
dore;
Beautiful 
G
One, my 
A
soul must  
D
  sing!

Verse 2

G
Powerful, so 
A
powerful, Your 
D/F#
glory fills the skies;
Your 
G
mighty works dis
A
played for all to 
Bm7
see.
The 
G
beauty of Your 
A
majesty a
D/F#
wakes my heart to sing
How 
G
marvelous how 
A
wonderful You 
D
are!

Bridge 1

You 
G
opened my eyes to Your 
A
wonders anew;
You 
G
captured my heart with this  
A
  love;
'Cause
